target fixation, he was gong through the turn, looked at the truck and started to pick it up. and BOOM slammed his head on the front of the truck.

Probably target fixation.

Any little tar snake or patch of gravel could cause you to do the same thing though. Don't ride the yellow line.

well your new around here so I'll set you straight. MOST of us on this forum try very hard to ride safetly and within or skill level. We try hard to instill rider safety and gear into everyone we come across. We all have sympathy for families and friends that have lost loved ones. But your are correct about one thing, we have little tolerance for riders that do silly stuff that cost them their lives. That is why MSF is mentioned on this site so often. A trained rider is a safer rider. Last thing I want is a dumbass head-oning me wether in my vehicle or on my bike because he tried doing something he wasn't ready for.
